Hopewell Valley Regional School District Reviews

In the past 12 years of being at Hopewell Valley, I believe that the knowledge I have gained has been substantial towards preparing me for college. My elementary school, Bear Tavern, gave 4th and 5th graders the opportunity to experience what a higher level class is like. The middle school was effective at preparing me, as well as many other students, for high school, both in giving us skills and knowledge that we would use in the future and in helping us establish proper personal studying techniques. Within my 3 years of being in the high school thus far, I have been able to find a passion in new extracurriculars and sports. In addition, I have been able to experience what a college course is like through AP courses. The high school has also helped me establish time-management skills, which are essential to anyone who is preparing for their college experience.

I really like Hopewell Valley Regional School District. All of the teachers are super friendly and are very helpful. If you ask a teacher for extra help in a class, they will always be there for you. Also, the high school has done a great thing with their recitations. This allows a student to get extra help in a world language, math, or english. Another great thing is that there are tons of things to do no matter what age you are. In elementary school, there are amazing activities like March Madness and the circus. In middle school, there are night outs for each grade which are tons of fun. For high school, there are numerous clubs to join that are amazing. The one thing I would like to see the district improve is the food quality. The elementary and middle school isn't the best, and the high school food improves a little.
Hopewell Valley did a fantastic job in preparing me for college. My roommates here at Carnegie Mellon we all hit by a truck when they began classes. They had never experienced that amount of work before and were not prepared. Hopewell gave me a similar amount of work to what I have received in college so far. Therefore I have been able to handle my first year of college well. Though the teachers were not always fantastic, they cared about their students for the most part. Bad teachers also prepared me for the horrible professors that all colleges have. Hopewell was a great place with great people.
